As if kids don't cost enough already,when they are older you have to cover the cost of college textbooks too.I had no idea how much textbooks really cost until I enrolled for my first semester of school.I went to the bookstore thinking I could cover the cost easily,until I realized some of the books cost a whole lot more than I had expected,especially considering I would only need most of them for a few months at most.
If you are facing the cost of buying books this year,consider getting them from Campus Book Rentals.These are the same books available for purchase,but gently used,so you save money.When you are finished with your books,you simply return them to be used by the next student.You get the same use from the rented books as the retail ones,you don't have to worry about trying to sell them when finished and you can browse,rent and return in a few fast and easy steps.You are even allowed to highlight in them if needed.
By renting the books instead of buying them,you can save 40-90 % over going to the bookstores.The renting periods are flexible,so no worries over needing to return the book the day your class is over.Using the 30 day,risk-free return period,you can feel secure trying this service,without commitment or consequence and they even offer free shipping-both ways!
My favorite part of Campus Book Rentals is that they donate to Operation Smile with every textbook rental.Operation Smile The international children's medical charity performs surgery on thousands of children born with cleft lips,palates and other facial deformities in over 60 countries around the world.For only $240,they can save the smile and create a new life for a child in need.
The next time you need a book on Psychology,Anatomy or any other subject,browse the site and see how much you can save this semester,and donate a smile while you are at it.
